MS Office 2010 creating ugly PDFs after upgrade to COO 15.2.0


After upgrade to CrossOver Office 15.2.0 on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 the MS Office 2010 is unable to generate clean PDFs. All of the fonts are ugly, and taxt are mixed up. It looks like 15.2.0 is doing something wrong with font metrics?

This issue has been forwarded to the Official CodeWeavers Ticket System. If you have observed this issue and would like to report it as well, please open a support ticket or send an email to with a description of what you are seeing and a link to this post.

15.2 was actually supposed to improve PDF exports in Office. Sounds like something has gone wrong in this case.

I'm going to forward this to our ticket system ... perhaps you can attach a sample PDF to a ticket?

I can confirm this. The save to PDF option in Powerpoint 2010 now does not seem to try to locate fonts on other machines that receive the PDF. Both Calibri and Courier New fonts seem to no longer be embedded into the saved file (even if I say to embed the fonts in the file) and the result is awful. It looks great on my machine, but others look terrible with the font substitution. Crossover Office Pro 15.2.0, Powerpoint 2010 on Ubuntu 16.04 under Mate. This used to work...

We're looking into this issue now as Bug 14224 in our system. Drop us a line and mention this bug number if you'd like to receive notification of when it's fixed.

Any news? With 16.2.0 it doesn't work also, and I have to print presentations using PDF printer to have them in this format.
What's interesting - the GDI level (printing) works perfectly fine with any fonts.
